It's that time of year again! You can join in and help CSCFKids go Back2School prepared for an outstanding school year!
Join our continuing community partners, STAPLES (Banksville Road), Half-Priced Books (McKnight Road) and PittsburghCARES as we team up to provide school supplies for nearly 200 children this year! Our school-aged children with sickle cell disease and their siblings will head back to school and they'll each receive a book bag with books, thumb-drives, calculators and school supplies to help them start the year prepared to succeed!
This year, with many thanks to PittsburghCARES, we have volunteers who will help sort books and supplies and pack them into bags for distribution at the Back2School Bash on August 20th! Join us in welcoming them with a thank you on Facebook or Twitter. #CSCFB2SBash16
The Back2School Bash is a family style cook out where children have fun activities and swim while their parents or guardians register them for the Educational Support program which provides support for children when they are away from the classroom to assist them with assignment retrieval, educational advocacy and support in 5 school districts in Allegheny and surrounding counties. Parents receive valuable information about Individualized Education and 504 Plans, and learn to advocate effectively for their child's educational achievement. They'll know what to do if their child is hospitalized during the school year, and their child will have the support they need to prevent them from falling behind. This program is funded in part by the generous support of the PA Department of Health.
